Fostering patient and family comfort is the heart of compassionate care at Hospice Halifax. From around-the-clock professional nursing care, to warm, inviting spaces, good food, licensed counselling and social work support, and on site family accommodations, Hospice Halifax will offer all its services free-of-charge.
In early 2019, a 10-bed hospice residence will open its doors at 618 Francklyn Street in Halifax. Every year, Hospice Halifax will welcome about 150 patients who have a terminal illness and are nearing the end of their lives. About 1,800 community members – patients’ extended family, friends and colleagues – will also have access to support at hospice.
